After nearly three years and countless COVID delays, Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on May 27, 2022.

According to IMDB, “After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.”

Lady Gaga Released “Hold My Hand”

The follow-up film to the 1986 classic will accompany an all-new theme song penned by Gaga. Fans of the pop star might think this is a strange pairing, but who better to write a powerful theme song for an aviator epic?

Gaga admitted that writing the song has been a labor of love and in the works for “years.” Her decision to write the theme is undoubtedly influenced by her desire to take home another academy award for Best Original Song. An honor she previously won for her work on “Shallow.”

The film’s original theme, “Take My Breath Away,” performed by Berlin and iconically released by Jessica Simpson in 2003, previously won an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Song. So it’s entirely possible that “Hold My Hand” could be Gaga’s next Oscar win!

The singer recently commented on the song, saying, “I didn’t even realize the multiple layers it spanned across the film’s heart, my own psyche, and the nature of the world we’ve been living in. I’ve been working on it for years, perfecting it, trying to make it ours.”

She thanked Cruise, Hans Zimmer, the film’s composer, and Joseph Kosinski, the director. Gaga concluded, “This song is a love letter to the world during and after a very hard time. I’ve wanted you to hear it for so long. And I’m so excited to give it to you on May 3.”

Gaga quietly released the full song on YouTube on May 2. Listen below.
